Subject Re: [ib-support] Firebird Questions
Author Artur Anjos
For a client installation, you need at least 3 files for Firebird to work:

- gds32.dll (not older than April 10th, 2001)
- interbase.msg
- msvcrt.dll

You can use the install setup or just copy this 3 files to the directory of
your application.
